Study area Material and Methods Central Province and forms part of Kenya s pastures are cut and carried to the cattle. Counties of the Rift Valley Province and lies locations, depending on the prevailing climatic release of hypobiotic larvae from the dormant state, leading to clinical GIN helminthosis. There Study design that goats are more susceptible than sheep to a similar challenge, others have reported that level using a sampling frame of the dairy farms In order to control gastrointestinal nematodes, it is important to identify the In Kenya, farmer s education, animal age project comparing smallholder dairy farms et al., 2012a; Dohoo

3 Risk Factors Associated With Gastrointestinal Nematode Infections Of Cattle In Nakuru And Mukurweini Districts Of Kenya 415 of smallholder dairy farmers considered representative of the various sub-districts and demographics of smallholder dairy farmers in the area, and the referent group of farmers generated, and the percentage of the infected of farming practices across smallholder dairy controlling for the effects of other factors and entered into the model. The logistic regression Faecal samples from each animal on and the district as random effects, controlled A questionnaire on farm management model. Results government or private veterinary service Univariable analysis of factors associated with gastrointestinal nematode infections Breed, age, gender, district, source practiced at the farm. Statistical analysis to predict GIN infections. infection among animals on the farms that got counting method gave an output in multiples of and carrying to the animals, or by communal a false positive due to the passing through of ingested eggs, or a very light level of parasitism.

Conclusion the infection prevalence being highest among to four months should be encouraged among even up to 6 months, because the nematode lifecycle involves environmental contamination, The overall GIN infection prevalence that shed eggs, thereby reducing egg counts in manure, and pasture contamination of infective larvae. frequency interval greater than six months Most farmers in this study practiced a advocated as a long-term control strategy for nematodes.
